The Dr. Tommy Comeaux Endowed Chair in Traditional Music at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette celebrates three Spring 2021 graduates whose studies focused on traditional music.
In February, Kaylin Maggard (May 2021 Juilliard BFA Dance) spent a week teaching contemporary dance and ballet to UL dance majors.
Her unique approach to teaching the embodiment of the physical body in dance was well received by the dance students. The dance program is hoping to continue this new relationship when Kaylin moves to Lafayette in the fall. She will be pursuing her master’s degree in Kinesiology and we are hoping to continue having her involved with our students both on and off stage.
This mini-residency was made possible by a SPARK grant.
